Solskjaer: We painted the city red!
"We painted the city red and there'll be a couple of glasses of wine for me tonight," says a delighted Ole...
Q: Ole, you've made a lot of Man United fans in this city very happy tonight... OGS: Painted the city red. Tonight we will have to enjoy ourselves. There'll be a couple glasses of red wine for me tonight. Q: When you see a performance, particularly in that first half that seems to match the game plan, how proud does that make you and the coaching staff? OGS: Oh, the coaching staff they put the detail into this. The preparation they do is fantastic and they give the boys the minute-ist detail to go towards and the boys executed their plan to perfection, apart from their keeper made some decent saves. We created so many chances. You can talk about our defending today, but you have to say that our attacking play especially in the first half was absolutely fantastic. Every time we had the ball I felt that we could score. Q: It's hard to pick out individuals, because it was a team effort, but the new signings they all seemed to play superbly well. OGS: Absolutely top class, top natch. We know why we have signed these three players. They fit perfectly into the way I want to play football and the coaches, how we want to play football and how the club wants to play. They're humble lads, hard working, great values. Aaron, he's playing against Sterling out there, Mahrez out there, De Bruyne out there and they just couldn't get past him. Q: You look at it now. A couple of wins and the top four suddenly isn't far away. We're fifth, we're only five points off the top four. Things can change quickly, clearly. OGS: Yeah, three days in football is a long time and we've had six points in these three days. Brilliant. The league table, it's way too early to start talking about this. We're working on improving as a team, sticking to what we believe in, playing the way we want to play, defend as a team, attack as a team and hopefully that will move us up the table. Q: You've had a few good days as United manager. Where does that rank? OGS: Up there with PSG, definitely and tonight as I said we're so happy for the supporters as well. Just go out in town and enjoy yourself.
